SDSS trades students continue community work with Friends of MacGregor project

Saugeen District Secondary School (SDSS) trades program continues to work on construction projects with community groups, which is not only an advantage for the groups but also gives students opportunities  to have hands-on experiences in the trades.
Friends of MacGregor Point Provincial Park reached out in another community involvement project for the students in a class-build of a much-needed shed for the Park.

Under the direction of teacher, Bud Halpin, the students partially constructed the shed at the local high school and then completed the finishing touches on-site at the Park.
“The shed will be used for drying and securely storing our signage and equipment that is used for the many festivals and events at the Park,” says Friends of MacGregor President, Sara Dolbeck.

“What is especially great about this collaboration,” adds Dolbeck, “is that we now have 22 students who were able to spend some quality time at the Park. They not only constructed the shed, but were able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and learn more about our local Provincial Park and that is so important for our youth.”
